"The Fiddle explores this musical heritage by examining the different styles of fiddle playing. Unlike guitar-picking styles, which branch from two main types, fiddle playing styles can differ dramatically from one musician to another. David Holt introduces four fiddlers who have created their own styles either from picking up the musical tradition of the region, differentiating from a basic style or combining the styles of several different musicians."
